Based in Roebourne, Juluwarlu is an organisation dedicated to preserving, recording and promoting the culture of Yindjibardni people. Works created at Juluwarlu span multiple platforms including audio, video, documents and photos. Juluwarlu offers traineeships for local people in cultural preservation, trips on Country and artist residences. The Arts Centre also produces documentaries, radio, TV and books and provides a space for the community to relax, feel safe and come together.

We recently caught up with some of the Juluwarlu artists travelling to Fremantle for Bazaar. Be sure to visit their stall and find out more about their work.

Margaret Read

Hi Margaret, can you tell us a bit about yourself and what you’ll be selling? 
I’ll be coming down to Fremantle to sell some of my paintings I do at Juluwarlu.

How do you make your works? 
I usually get a vision or idea in my head and then I start. I start with an outline and then I start painting it. I’m kind of new at being an artist, I really only started last year (2019).

Why is it important to support local makers?
Because they put in the time, patience and hours to achieve good results.

What’s your top gift tip this Christmas? 
Sharing and caring!

Tell us a bit about yourself and what you’ll be selling? 
I’ll be selling some of my art and my boards.

How do you make your works?
I sit down for weeks and do a big painting. Then I’ll go back to my board then think about my painting and then go back to painting. I paint about Ngurra. I like painting about my Country, it’s good to paint about your country, it reminds you of being back there.

Why is it important to support local makers? 
It is important to share our art and culture with other artists from different places.

Wendy Hubert (artist) 

Tell us a bit about yourself and what you’ll be selling? 
I’ll be selling my pictures of trees.

How do you make the works?
 I’m still learning! But I’m getting it slowly. I always painted by myself at home or on Country but now since I’ve started at Juluwarlu I am more focused.

Bazaar runs 5–9pm Fri 4 Dec | 9am–5pm Sat 5 & Sun 6 Dec
